Science vocabulary glossaries

ASE has become aware of a number of excellent resources developed by local authorities and other organisations aimed at helping students arriving in the UK and with English as an additional language, and their teachers.  The Cambridgeshire County Council website features an example, with a Polish glossary being provided.

We would like to be able to disseminate information which you may be aware of and would be grateful if you could email with the details of any such resources.  We will then provide a page on the ASE website for this information.
